2007 Mini Cooper S: More Quirks

November 28, 2007

Other quirks I just noticed about our 2007 Mini Cooper S? The dimmer switch located on the tachometer actually works by pressing it like a button, not twisting it like how it is in most cars I've been in. Mind you I was determined to figure out how to work this without reading the manual. So when you press and hold the skinny "button," the interior lights get brighter and pressing it briefly makes it dimmer...

Hm. I like it.

Also, the climate controls don't display actual temperature choices. If you want it cold, just dial up the blue section. Hot? Dial red. Who really needs to know the exact temperature anyway?

Ah, Mini, why must you be so quirky? I love you anyway.
